Thank you, Clare, for making it happen.
Tonight, Kevin Cross and I took our students to Burlington High School’s production of Curtains.
So lovely, for many reasons.
The cast, crew, production were all wonderful. But the most wonderful thing was seeing my students smile and laugh.
They didn’t have any idea what was happening.
But they enjoyed going out at night with us to watch a show and to see some students they normally see in street clothes at school.
And some of them might just someday find their way to the stage. They enjoyed seeing these people on stage. “Maybe when my English is better.” “Yes! Is good!” “I like it.”
There were a couple of students who were just too tired to stay awake and alert. They had to be admonished for taking out phones. But for the most part, they liked it. We’ll do a bar chart tomorrow to measure success.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thanks to all of you, cast, crew, directors, musicians, and financial supporters and offerers, for helping us bring this night to our students. I love you all.
